We are currently providing trial access to Statista, a site that compiles statistics from various sources and presents them in visually arresting ways. Many of the stats have a business angle, but variety is the key word here. Some examples:
- Number of daily active Facebook users worldwide as of 4th quarter 2014
- American households owning a pet in 2012, by species
- Annual inflation rate in the United States from 1990 to 2014
- Newspaper revenue worldwide from 2008 to 2017, by source
You get the idea.
You can easily toggle between different kinds of charts, and then download a high-quality image, PDF or PowerPoint slide, or export the data as an Excel file.
Where does the info come from? According to Statista,
data sources include market research reports, such as the Ipsos Affluent Survey published annually by Ipsos Media, Simmons National Consumer Studies and Consumer Insights from Scarborough Research, as well as trade publications, scientific journals, and government databases.
